Representatives from SLGE and ICMA-RC discussed polling research on auto-enrollment in supplemental retirement plans in a webinar on May 7, 2019.
Nearly half of state and local employees approve of auto-enrollment in defined contribution plans, known as Supplemental Retirement Plans (SRPs), and 77 percent would choose to stay in a plan if auto-enrolled. The research also finds that among those who would stay in the plan, higher default deferral rates result in respondents settling on a higher contribution rate.
